PCMTEC Editor Version 0.61 has now been released as of 13/3/18
To download please login then visit https://www.pcmtec.com/downloads This page is only available for customers who have purchased the full version of the software (Enthusiast, Professional and Workshop).
The following new features have been added to version 0.61
You can now smooth cells between the horizontal/vertical bounds, or via both bounds. Change the cell selection using left click drag select or the shift key. You can continue pressing smooth until all the cells will eventually reach the same value.
Interpolation draws a straight line between the horizontal/vertical bounds of the selected cells.
We have updated the UI to use newer prettier icons that we have had custom designed to give the application a better look and feel.
Text Descriptions for normalisers and curves.
We have added descriptions where possible to certain normalisers, specifically the torque sources. This will now make modifying the torque sources much easier for those who have not done this before.
VID Block Editor
As promised the Professional and Workshop versions now have access to the VID block editor. This has involved adding dropdown menus to the Scalar lists which will be welcome addition. Using the VID block editor you can now change the speed source! This will be very useful for those which want to use the stock PCM in a converted car that is not running the ABS or an Automatic computer.
You can now select points on the normaliser curves and drag them up and down to modify the curve. This makes visualising certain curves much easier.
Variable decimal points.
You can now control the exact number of decimal points on the Tables and Scalars. This also removes scientific notation from the view (eg 23E-10) which is not intuitive for most users. When you click to modify a cell the non truncated value is still shown to avoid any data loss. The decimal place setting is a global parameter which is retained upon restart.
Global View Levels
You can now hide certain parameters to simplify the view. Eg for the workshop customers the ~4000 parameters available can be overwhelming especially as many may not be commonly used. You can now set the view level to "Enthusiast" etc and this setting will be retain upon restart. You can also filter per ECM module, this means you can hide all TCM parameters if you are not currently tuning the TCM.
Due to the large number of changes and bug fixes in 0.61 we will be disabling 0.60 from logging in over the coming days. All of your existing files will continue to open in 0.61 however you will be required to download the update.
Multiple units have been updated to improve the accuracy of their descriptions
Performance enhancements when undocking/docking windows.
Performance enhancements to TableView
Non sequential normalisers can now be edited and "fixed".
Dropdown menus would occasionally remain greyed out despite being enabled.
Editing an axis would fail to redraw the axis on any currently opened tables and show an error in the log.
Redo (Ctrl + Y) did not work in some circumstances.
Change history would show raw binary value instead of text value for scalars that had text values text.
If you read a ZF as an enthusiast customer (ZF can only be licensed by Pro/Workshop) and attempted to license it it would succeed and show you a blank file.
Better error displays when an out of range or non sequential value is added.
